Expanded and streamlined search function: With this release, data.world has introduced significantly more powerful search capabilities while at the same time presenting a redesigned results interface that provides the best possible user experience. Now you can not only search for more assets, but you can also filter your results by resource type or by integrated facets like status, owner, or tag. Each refinement of the results set tells you how many assets meet the combined criteria, and it's easy to drill down through the myriad results to find just the asset you are looking for.
In the example below, the search term was "bee" (shown in the search bar). Below the search bar you can see that the search returned 321 results from data owned by me or an organization to which I belong. If I wished to expand the results set, I could check the box on the upper right to include results from the rest of the community (719 total).
The dropdown menu below the search bar allows you to further refine your search by resource type. By default the search returns items from all of the resource types. In the search shown there were 59 data resources (tables, files, datasets, or metadata tables), 16 project and analysis assets (projects, insights, queries, or cataloged dashboards, one business glossary item (business terms, data types, or catalogs), and 245 matches with people or organizations. Selecting any one of the options on the menu will filter the results to show just that resource type.
A filter on the resource type can also be combined with one or more filters on the facets (shown on the left side of the screen). The default facet types are owner and tag, with status and customizable fields available to enterprise users.
Selecting a resource type filter or a facet instantly changes both the search results and the options for further filtering:
